National Village Cup



205 FOR 8




Sunday 2nd August 2015 


After the victory over second placed Cowbridge the previous week Bronwydd were looking to strengthen their place at the top of division 2 of the SWCA with their visit to Measteg. Ground preparation had been at a minimum and the teams had to wait until 3pm for the umpire to be satisfied the conditions were suitable to start play. The game was reduced to 37 overs and the hosts won the toss and elected to bat first in conditions which did not suit the bowlers. Andrew King 55 and Ryan Parry 50 put on 84 for the first wicket and when Measteg lost another wicket on the same score the game swung a little towards Bronwydd. The home bats made full use of the short boundaries hitting 9 sixes in their final total of 178 for 6 after the game had again been reduced to 34 overs per team. David Dunfee 2, George Gleeson 2 and Gihan Fernando with 1 were the wicket takers with Meirion Davies executing a sharp run out for the final wicket to fall.

The reply was given a good start by James Cale and Oli Furneaux as the pair put on 31 for the first wicket but they were both dismissed on that score. Phillip Howell and George Gleeson took the score to 62 after 13 overs putting Bronwydd in an ideal position to chase down the target but the weather had the final word as the umpire took the players from the field, leaving both sets of players frustrated. With 4 games left to play Bronwydd are now 25 points above Cowbridge at the top of the table.


Bronwydds remarkable run in this years Davidstow Village Cup was finally halted when the rearranged quarter final was played in Pelsall on Sunday. The large Bronwydd group of supporters were able to watch two good cricketing teams and not be distracted by the mindless behaviour of some of the home supporters who soured what was a piece of history for the team from West Wales.

The home team won the toss and elected to bat and were never able to get on top of the Bronwydd bowlers who stuck to their plans and with the ground fielding again at a high standard the only Pelsall batsmen to impose himself was Todd Henderson who finished with 73 out of a final total of 205 for 8. Tom Gleeson 2,Gihan Fernando 2 and one each for ColinTucker and Dafydd Morgan were the wicket takers.

Bronwydd had successfully chased down scores in excess of 200 in the two previous rounds and needed a good start to secure a home semi final. James Cale continued his good form but Bronwydd found themselves at 33 for 3. The early damage was repaired by Byron Jones and Meirion Davies who took the score to 139 after 28 overs and the dream at this stage was still alive, but they both fell in quick succession Byron for 34 and Meirion for 60 off only 64 balls and the tail were unable to push for victory as the last wicket fell with Bronwydd 57 runs short .

The club has enjoyed its best run in this popular village competition and have surely been helped by the large group of travelling supporters who have followed the team during this campaign.
